A traditional and sympathetically extended croft cottage in the popular village of Rafford, offering cottage style, spacious family accommodation including four bedrooms, sitting room, leading to SE facing sun room, dining kitchen, family bathroom and separate shower room. There is an abundance of storage capacity both inside and outside. Recent upgrade to the heating system by fitting modern electronically programmable electric radiators. Auchentulloch stands in its own grounds of approx 1/3 acre with a single detached garage. 4 KW Solar panels attract FIT at the highest rate not expiring until 2036 and provided an income of £1700 in 2016-17 which substantially offset energy expenses. The windows in the large extension are double glazed timber framed and the rest of the property has Everest secondary glazing. All roof space is floored. The wood burning Rayburn in the kitchen is fully functional should it ever be required and can provide hot water plus cooking.
The beautiful surrounding countryside with close proximity to the coast, make this a superb property as a family home.

Forres is a delightful small town on the A96, with a High Street alive with small shops that can meet all your needs. Forres has schools, health centre and a vast array of amenities.

Around 20 years ago the bespoke timber framed extension was built to accommodate ageing parents, both of whom used wheelchairs. The new extension wing was built with 90cm wide doors allowing easier wheelchair access to existing kitchen and living areas. Primarily, the extension consists of a wheelchair friendly outside door off driveway with paved path and into a hall with storage cupboards. This leads to a large room designed as a bedsit to accommodate two adults requiring care and if needed, could easily be converted into two rooms of approx 3.75M X 3.5M & 3.75M X 2.5M plus access corridor. The room has a large en suite bathroom, again to allow wheelchair access and was designed with a bath for elderly people needing assistance but may not suit others needs. However the large space would allow rework into a large shower or wet room.
The Home Report gave a valuation of £250,000 and is currently marketed at ‘Guide Price’ of the same but there is a reasonable amount of flexibility over this.
Directions: If using sat nav, do not turn of the main road as directed because the property lies on the B9010 road. Look for a copper beech hedge, solar panels on roof and Purple Bricks for sale sign.
